Why You Need Us!

I don’t know about you, but I hate voicemail. I just don’t want to leave a message on something that gives me no idea who, when or how they will get back to me. When I am looking for a needed service, I simply want to talk to a person. I believe in doing business person to person.
Along those same lines, when I call a service company and the receptionist answers the line and asks me to hold and then I am there, waiting, and waiting and waiting, I start to wonder, maybe this company needs help. Maybe this company is understaffed.  Maybe I should call someone else.
